Host: Edinburgh International Book Festival
Location: Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, EH2 4HQ
Speaker: Zadie Smith, James Naughtie
Few authors endure such a weight of expectation around the publication of a new novel as Zadie Smith. NW, Smith’s fourth fictional outing, returns to the part of London which inspired her acclaimed debut White Teeth, and follows the fortunes of four former friends who grew up together on a housing estate. We are thrilled that the leading British novelist unveils her much-anticipated new book in Edinburgh, in conversation with James Naughtie.More Information
